Oh, my darling Bud. I found even more candy around the house after I got home tonight. He didn't forget my chocolate marshmallow eggs. And he brought me two hanging baskets of pansies for my front porch. I found them tonight hanging on the porch, waiting desperately for Mother Nature to keep them happy and growing. That means no more 40 degree days, lady!
Seriously. I do not deserve this man. I have to be extra good for an infinite amount of time. Yes, he got me a Garmin one week, and bags of candy the next. Doesn't make sense, I know. But I said in a small, quiet voice "I would like just a small bit of chocolate for Easter" the other night, and he asked "Do you need it?" and I replied "Are you telling me that after 44 years of getting Easter candy on Easter I'm not going to get one piece?!!!!"
Well, I guess he listened to the sheer panic in my voice. Easter is not what it once was--it's usually a day of work for me, and the only thing that links it to childhood is that candy-peeps, chocolate marshmallow eggs, and some jelly beans. I asked, and Jesus decided to send Bud to the store to bring me some candy. Or maybe not. Jesus may have been busy lately.
So now I've got a bunch o'candy sitting at my house. I have eaten so much stuff today, I had to turn to a late night pot of coffee to help regulate the havoc all those bites of brownie, quiche, pork roast, salad, mexican casserole, and yes, pink peeps have done to my system. I think if I ran a marathon at a record pace this week it still would not burn off nearly all of the eleventy billion calories I stuffed in my face today.
Tomorrow is another day. I will be eating salad and lots of green veggies this week to jump start my system. The candy will be put away until a later date. If you don't hear from me for a few days, it's cause I can't get out of bed due to the battle of good vs evil that is going on inside my body.
Hope everyone had a lovely day today and are rested up for a new week ahead.
Dare I say the gym will probably be busy tomorrow? Sweat it off, girl!
